We love the Gingerbread Cottage. Having stayed at a number of hotels and B&B's, I've got to say that this is my favorite one of them all. And it's really the great environment that Vanessa and Dean have put together here that makes the Gingerbread Cottage so great.
You can walk to tons of places here, or just linger in your room and relax. However, the best thing of all at the Gingerbread Cottage is the breakfast here - it's absolutely incredible. Fresh ingredients, expert cooking and terrific hospitality probably qualifies the Gingerbread Cottage for best B&B breakfast ever.
Anyway, the Gingerbread Cottage is the best, and if you're staying here - you're a very lucky person indeed.
